What this means for The Porches …

“With only four homes available at yesterday’s pricing ($421/SF to $479/SF) these homes are a VALUE. New homes built in our area are selling for $500 +/SF and do not have the same quality of construction. I have gone out and spoken with the general contractors that build luxury homes comparable to the Porches quality and across the board they reported that just for construction costs you are looking at $400/SF, and that does not include the infrastructure and land costs (add an additional $70/SF),” says Beth Postemski, Director of Sales at The Porches.

“Mr. Moore who just closed on a 5,100 sf Porches home saw why his purchase at the Porches for just $454/SF was a very good value. Keep in mind that as we sell out of phase one inventory here, new construction pricing at the Porches will be significantly higher. The window of opportunity to purchase at The Porches at this price point is closing fast.
